They added cower-like abilities to some pets. i.e.: Shale Spiders get Solide Shell (50% damage reduction, 60s CD) on top of stats+crit buffs.

That's not "cower" like; that's like shell shield that turtles have. Shell Shield
or beetles Harden Carapace

 

Turtle seems kind of pointless then after this; doesn't give a buff; just keeps shell shield; so you're going to run a shale spider to get the Solid Shell + the buff Embrace of the Shale Spider for solo'ing unless they change pet abilities around some more.

 

It's also possible some of the tooltips are either incorrect or incorrectly datamined or bugged altogether; Thick Hide is one of the Rhino's abilities; so a 120 CD 50% reduction when the other pets have the 60 second? Why? Also the Quillen's new ability Stone Armor is weird; couldn't find it on any other pet; seems crappier than any of the 50% 12 second CDs though; but with the Quillen you get buffs as well.

 

Altogether it doesn't seem like losing cower for 1 buff is equal compensation. With solo'ing I generally opt for survivability over damage 90% of the time. Not having cower doesn't sound good; the way they "think" they are compensating sounds even worse.

This.

 

And that's why, in bm spec, we will keep spirit beast for almost all solo. His spirit mend can be use on himself, so in 70% of the cases it's a better cd-def than turtle/beetle shield (remember that his heal is more powerful if used on himself, and only 30sec cd).

 

For bm solo, we'll keep spirit beast, but without cower. That's a huge nerf imo who can't be compensated by any species ability

I personally won't comment on the WoD changes before beta starts (I just hope I'll have a key, so I can complain with proof if we get nerfed). I will only congratulate Shoot for the lastest solos.

 

However, now that i'm back, I was planning on organizing a 25-man hunter raid (alliance, europe) since I sincerely believe that a group of skilled hunters can clear non-SOO MoP bosses normal: I've been thinking of strategies for MSV, HoF, ToES and ToT normal for a while, and haven't found a boss that has a mechanic that would make it impossible yet, so it's all about wether we have enough healing (for high-damage bosses, I just hope I can find enough "healers"=hunters with 5 spirit beasts).

 

But how to organize it? I was thinking about using a forum, so do you know a good free forum hoster that's easy to use? Or does anyone has another idea?

 

Edit: forum half-finished

Thanks and welcome back; hope finals went well; I would join if I wasn't US. To organize it you might want to try reddit or something like that.

I really wish this was US, Durendil!
Shoot, I have been planning to get a 25-man Hunter MSV going for some time, maybe we can join heads and see what we can do about making this a reality.

I already have a few Hunters who I know are definitely in.

Ok, so I made the forum at https://sites.google...spandaria/forum

 

To avoid too many off-topic messages in this thread, I suggest, if you want to ask anything, that you ask to join the group and post in the "discussions" thread.

Don't hesitate to read the "read me" section for any basic info.

I hope we'll be able to organize great raids!

I know a few people that would probably be interested as well. Not 25 though =/

Maybe a new world first (legit kill, don't forget Durendil's one) : Ragnaros 25 hm before enrage.

 

 

16min10 to kill him, so I guess it was doable without new upgrades after all (I think 580 ilvl is needed).

 

I was in bm spec because I have a better gear for this spec atm, but sv is a better choice for this fight.
